Fall Porch Tour

Melissa over at the Inspired Room is having a Fall Porch tour. I love looking at front porches, especially in the fall! I not only love her name, but Melissa's got a great site dedicated to home. From her site: a happy mix of realistic interior design, simple homemaking and inspiration for authentic living.

So, here are some I took out on my yard sale adventures. I have no idea who lives in these and I was getting some very strange looks from the gardeners and workers around the neighborhood, so I just snapped a few and ran!

I loved this basket of fall foliage just sitting on a bench..
This was my absolute favorite house, sorry you can't see the porch better:

Now, this one is someone I do know, so I snapped photos to my heart's content. This is my friend Marti's yard. She is amazing~she is an absolute wizard with gardening and loves to turn trash into treasure as well. I love her house:





This is my friend and neighbor Alison's. Her yard always looks immaculate as well and she's got great taste~I especially love her wreath! Sorry the pics aren't the greatest~it's getting dark so much earlier now!




Y'all have fun touring~thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi, other Melissa! :-) You found some gorgeous doors and decor! That first house was a real mansion! And I loved that white one with the porch too. Your friend's yard is lovely too...she is really talented!

    Great tour, thanks for sharing it with us! :-)

    Happy Monday!

  2. Now those are beautiful porches! LOL about getting looks from gardeners. I would be too afraid of having the cops called because a weird looking petite woman is taking pictures of from porches! LOL Great picture taking!

  3. Those are some amazing mansions you've got around there. But you know what? I actually like your friends' homes better. They're more down-to-earth, more cozy. And, really, more welcoming.

    Thank you for the tour!

  8. What a fun tour of fall porches! No wonder you find such great deals and items when you go yard-saleing! You are in fantastic neighborhoods! I loved the yard that belonged to your friend...the one with the potted trees along the path to the front porch...that girl has a green thumb! Thanks for sharing the fun pics. I love fall! Have a great day! I so love your blog and great ideas!

  14. I love that you just took the photos and ran! Maybe I should try that too...but my neighbors are more of the "let's put up some orange twinkle lights and caution tape for Halloween" types. Not my style! :)
